PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested two men caught inside a home in the 3300 block of Croton Terrace in Port Charlotte early this morning. The owner called CCSO 911 and said she heard a car door closing sound, footsteps, a loud crash sound and saw a man climbing in her rear window.
Deputies responded, set up a perimeter, called for a K9 and Street Crimes Units. A deputy looked inside the broken window and saw a man going through drawers and wearing gloves. A command was given to exit but the man ran down a hallway and out of sight. A K9 unit arrived and the deputy pounded on the door and ordered the man to exit or he would release his K9.
Anthony David Combs, 34, of 8186 Gancedo Avenue in North Port, surrendered and was handcuffed. Deputies found a loaded .45 caliber pistol magazine in his pocket and a pair of dark gloves.
Deputies checked the interior of the home and located a second subject hiding in a bedroom closet. A loaded .380 pistol and a loaded .45 pistol were found in the closet where Sibilia had been, as well as a mask and several plastic “zip” ties fashioned into what appeared to be handcuffs. Deputies asked his name and he replied Ceaser Sanchez. His true identity was confirmed from a previous arrest as 23-year-old Frank Sibilia, who is homeless in Port Charlotte. He was taken to the Charlotte County Jail along with Combs.
Both were charged with Armed Burglary, and Possession of Burglary Tools. Sibilia was additionally charged with Giving a False Name to an Officer. Combs was additionally charged with Possession of a Firearm or Ammunition by a Convicted Felon. Both remain in jail; bond for Combs is set at $10,000; this is his sixth booking; Sibilia’s bond is set at $8,500.
